New Form 4473 says pot smokers cannot purchase guns!

I was cleaning out paperwork and found a Form 4473, that Pete had filled out about 13 years ago at KMart; he had passed this background check and purchased a gun, there, and at other licensed gun dealers in Maine! Maine Game Wardens should never have seized OUR guns, purchased during OUR marriage. I had asked for Intervenor status as well as for there to be a hearing to challenge the search warrant...it's called a Frank's hearing. It was scheduled back in 2013, but I was never notified of the hearing date by the court, so I didn't appear. And since Pete had wanted to get things over with, and had agreed to a plea bargain, neither he or his attorney showed, and the motion was dismissed.  

When I was researching about the form 4473, I read that the new form has a question on it, 11.e., which asks the applicant about marijuana use. Despite that your state may have legalized it for recreational use, or even if you have been prescribed marijuana for medical use, you will not be able to legally purchase a gun. Here's a link to the form Firearms Transaction Record, that was revised in October of 2016 and has been in use since mid January 2017.
